There was a time when telephone was the only contact with the police that citizens had. If something was wrong or you felt unsafe, you could dial 911, provide your location and the situation, and the police would be dispatched immediately. Technology is changing how both citizens and police interact. The following police android apps are sure to put a stop to mass crime everywhere:
- Scanner Radio Pro
- Storm Chase Buddy
- Scanner Buddy
- Radio Scanner (Live Police Scanner App)
- Police Scanner 2
- 5-0 Radio Police Scanner Lite
The Scanner Radio Pro provides only one channel, in contrast to 2500 channels, and has an alert feature that shows you the number of individuals tuned in to the same channel. The differences between the Scanner Radio Pro and its Scanner Radio original are advertisement removal, the channel notification feature you can select for future news, and the radio archives (for up to 30 days prior).
The Scanner Radio Pro has two scanners, a police scanner and an emergency scanner—the police scanner is for normal police work, while the emergency scanner is there in case of emergencies or life or death circumstances. If you want to read channel responses from the listeners, install the Scanner Radio Pro Chat Plug-In and read away.
The Storm Chase Buddy alerts users when a storm is soon to arrive. The application comes with emergency and police scanners, as well as winter maps and weather alerts to alert users. The Storm Chase Buddy also provides earthquake information for those in earthquake-ridden areas and costs $2.99. Currently, the storm application can be bought online for as little as $0.99. The only states whose weather is covered on the Storm Chase Buddy application are the following:
Invented by Karlan Mitchell, the Scanner Buddy is a free Android police scanner application that requires an unlimited phone plan on your Android phone to run properly. It can record up to one minute of police action on your phone card and only picks up certain major cities in any given state. Scanner Buddy has a fast loading speed and lots of public safety agencies you can contact in the case of fire or other emergencies.
You can activate Scanner Buddy by clicking on the Scanner Buddy icon on your desktop. On the next screen, you must select the agency you want to listen to and then the state in which you want to listen. There are different frequencies for each country and state. You should come up to a screen with a scrolling list of names. If, for example, you select the state of California, you would come up to a screen that lists North San Diego County Sherriff’s Office, Sonoma County Fire Departments, Santa Cruz County Fire Department, Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department, and others as potential choices.
Click the button to the left of the display screen to start the live feed; you can click the same button to stop the live listening when you are finished. If you want to find more departments nearest you, click the GPS button in the middle of the display screen.
The scanners described above are the best three police scanners for Android phones. No matter which police scanner on Android wins your ear, what your ears hear on the select scanner and the channel will remind you that law enforcement is on the job.
